31st Annual Mortenson Distinguished Lecture
November 8, 2021; 12:30-2:00pm CT (find your local time using www.worldtimebuddy.com)

"Engineering Change and the Power of Information: Otherness, Exclusion, Propaganda, Dislocation"

Featuring:
Dr. Agnes Kaposi, Engineer, Educator, Holocaust survivor and Author of “Yellow Star-Red Star” (2020)

In conversation, moderated by:
Dr. Valerie Matsumoto, Professor in the Department of History and the Department of Asian American Studies at UCLA, George and Sakaye Aratani Chair on the Japanese American Incarceration, Redress and Community, UCLA

Join us for a lecture with Dr. Kaposi, who brings nearly a century of perspective as she tells her life story and the role of information as a source of power/control resulting in otherness, exclusion, propaganda, dislocation, as well as transformation in engineering change. A conversation will follow, moderated by Dr. Valerie Matsumoto, to connect Dr. Kaposi’s experiences with those of other marginalized and dislocated groups worldwide, such as Japanese Americans, to identify similarities and differences across time and locations, as we rethink some of the most pressing issues that libraries face in promoting equitable communities in our information-intensive and networked society.
